  1. This was my build for the Britmodeller, 2020, Battle of Britain Group Build. The Hurricane is from the Airfix 1/48, Ready for Battle Gift Set. The only things I added extra were the motor - to run the prop, the aerial wire and the pilot figure which is, I think, from the Airfix Seafire kit. I thoroughly enjoyed the build even though the kit has to be carefully assembled due to some tight tolerances. This Gift Set was a birthday present from a colleague at work a few years ago - so I would like to say a big thank you for the very thoughtful gift. Kit: Airfix 1/48 Ready F
  2. Not sure how much time I'm going to have for this project with everything that’s going on, but it is THE Battle of Britain 80th Anniversary GB!! This was a birthday present from a colleague at work a few years ago: I'm going to at least try and get the Hurricane finished (hopefully with the prop motorised) and then see how many of the other bits and pieces I can complete before the finish. Really looking forward to the GB! Kind regards, Stix
  3. I am struggling for time for kit making at the moment, but I can't not take part in an MTO GB! So, unlike my previous projects in previous MTO GBs, this is going to have to be a one-off 1/48 Panzer III build. From Wikipedia - The 501st Heavy Panzer Battalion was part of the Afrika Korps in North Africa. Following the Allied landing in French North Africa the Battalion, with its 16 Panzer IIIs, arrived in Tunisia between November 1942 and January 1943. Initially only three Tiger Is of the 501st landed at Tunis on 23 November 1942. These first elements of the battalion, along with four
  4. Republic P-47D Thunderbolt - WZ-P - No.226551 As flown by Lt.Col. Benjamin Mayo, 84th FS, 78th FG, Duxford Air Base, 1944 Kit: 1/48 Tamiya "Bubbletop" Paints: Citadel, Humbrol and Revell - all applied by brush. Built mostly OOB apart from a few bits of scratch-built plastic and wire in the cockpit and wheel wells. This was built as part of the Republic P-47 Thunderbolt STGB Work In Progress: Here This build represents a number of firsts for me. It's the first non-Spitfire aircraft build since getting back into making kits again a few years back (I'm not counting the Captain Scarlet Angel
  5. Well it's been a while since I’ve made any aircraft kits but two GBs have got me back into building 1/72nd aircraft. This build was for the ‘In the Navy’ GB that is still running down in the Group Build section. I have previously built Airfix’s 1/72nd Wildcat as if it were in flight so, when a colleague at work kindly got me this Martlet for a birthday a while back, I thought - rather than make it with the wings out, I would do them folded. The ‘In the Navy’ GB seemed the logical place to make it in this way and I had some ideas for how I would display it. This particular Mk.IV Martl
  6. Hi all. I was intending to make something in 1/35 for this STGB but there are so many GBs I want to take part in over the next few months, that I have opted to do something in 1/48 instead. Luckily this kit arrived in the post last week. I have made one of these SU122s before and thoroughly enjoyed making it. Last time I did it in plain Russian green - this time I'm going to try doing a winter white-wash version - over Russian Green. I'm also going to try doing my first winter scene on the base. I've bought a variety of winter based scenery products over the years but haven't used them yet - w
  7. PK553 of No. 607 (County of Durham) Squadron, Royal Auxiliary Air Force, RAF Ouston, 1948. From the Airfix website: Spitfire PK553 was produced at the Castle Bromwich factory as part of contract B981687/39 and issued to No.607 Squadron, Royal Auxiliary Air Force. The RAuxAF was a force of paid volunteers who acted as a reinforcement reserve force for the Royal Air Force, giving up their evenings, weekends and holidays to train and serve in this essential force, following the end of the Second World War. RAF No 607 Squadron reformed on 10th May 1946 as a RAuxAF day fighter squadron
  8. This was my project for the T-34 STGB. The GB is still going on so, if you are a fan of WW2 Russian armour, it's well worth checking out. The SU-122 was the first major variant of the T-34 chassis. Around 1,150 of them were built between 1942 and 1944. Weighing in at about 30 tons and with a crew of 4, the SU-122 was not originally designed as a tank destroyer but was supposed to be used against German fortified positions, strongholds and for ranged infantry support. After crew training, the first units of these were active in late 1942 and early 1943. The regiments the
  9. Well it's been a while since I’ve posted anything in this area, but two GBs have got me back into building 1/72nd aircraft. This build was for the ‘In the Navy’ GB that is still running down in the Group Build section. I have previously built Airfix’s 1/72nd Wildcat as if it were in flight so, when a colleague at work kindly got me this Martlet for a birthday a while back, I thought - rather than make it with the wings out, I would do them folded.

  10. So my 1 and only lockdown build. Being a key worker I am either at work or at home looking after my daughter. Here is the Tamiya Tiger 1, and Brush painted. First time I have done track links and have to say what a pain. Over all a fun build and enjoyed the painting. Regards daron
  11. I apologise for being a bit late to the party @TEMPESTMK5. It's a Spitfire STGB!! Can't miss out on one of these. I had intended to be more organised and build Eduard's 1/72 Mk.IXc Late ProfiPACK Version but it's a beautiful and quite complex kit and I have another GB I want to take part in which starts in a few weeks time. So, rather than building the Eduard kit in a rush, I have opted for Airfix's less complex kit that I picked up about seven years ago for the princely sum of £6.99! It was an impulse buy from Geoff's Toys in Loughborough - a shop that sadly no longer exists! The im
  12. The new(ish) Airfix Martlet in 1/72 will be my entry (possibly the first of two) for this GB. These are the bits and bobs I'm thinking of using: I have previously made Airfix's 1/72 Wildcat as if it was in flight so with this one I'm intending to do it with the wings folded. I must also add that this kit was bought for my birthday a couple of years ago by a colleague at work - so a big thank you to them. Kind regards, Stix
  13. This is my first ever aircraft build which I built as part of the Blitzbuild GB, having built my first ever Tank in a previous one. It was a fun build with somewhat challenging decals! I hope you enjoy my little Egg plane, it was great fun to build as quickly as I could. The kit came with a little pilot: Just to show how
  14. This was my project for the T-55 Single Type Group Build down in the Britmodeller Group Build section. The Tamiya kit was a joy to build although I had a couple of fit issues early on - which surprised me for a Tamiya kit. Nothing major - just a few wishy-washy connection points/areas. Of course it could have just been me that was the issue! Early on I decided to replace the band tracks with some individual track links from MiniArt and didn't want to use the mesh provided by Tamiya so got the relevant grill set from Eduard. For this project I decided to try some slightly more restrained w
  15. Hi everybody. I hope everyone is keeping well. This was a project that I finished a month or so back but, with what's been happening with the current circumstances, I have found it difficult to find much time for modelling or getting onto Britmodeller. I'm trying to make up for that a bit today as this is the first day for a few weeks that I haven't been constantly trying to do my job remotely from home. This was a project that I began right at the start of the year as a stop gap between GBs. I wanted something relatively quick to make and, as I had made another modern 1/48 armo
  16. Well it's been a while since I posted anything in this section but I have just finished my build of Tamiya's 1/48 Razorback Thunderbolt in the P-47 STGB. I have built it as the P-47D of Captain Walker "Bud" Mahurin in 1944. Captain Mahurin was the first American pilot to become a double ace in the European Theatre. According to Wikipedia he was the only United States Air Force pilot to shoot down enemy planes in both the European and Pacific Theatres and the Korean War. During World War II he was credited with 20.75 aerial victories, making him the sixth-highest American P-47 ace. He was
  17. Mosquito FB Mk.VI MM417 EG-T No. 487 Squadron RNZAF Based at Hunsdon, Hertfordshire in February/March 1944 This 1/72 Tamiya Mosquito was my build for the De Havilland Mega GB that is currently taking place down in the GB section of Britmodeller. Ever since seeing the film '633 Squadron' as a youngster I always loved the Mosquito although, oddly enough, I don't think I've ever made a model of one before. I decided fairly early on in the project that I wanted to show the aircraft in flight so I purchased some new miniature motors - the Airfix motors I already had would
  18. Well it’s been a while since I've built anything in this section of Britmodeller - I've been spending most of my time in the Group Build section recently. Anyway, I have a bit of time before the next GB I want to take part in - so I had a quick look through the stash to find something relatively quick to build. I've been building a Tiran 5 recently so thought I'd like to do something more modern again. Also, having been looking at some of the excellent AFV 1/48 models being built here, I decided to do something in 1/48 - and this is what I have decided on: I've made Tamiya's
  19. Hawker Hurricane Mk.I R4118 Take off at the Victory Show 2015 Well it's been a while since I have posted anything in this section but here is my project from the recent Hawker (Siddeley) GB. The project itself started when I discovered that the 1/48 new tool Airfix kit, I had in the stash, included the decals for the restored version of Mk.I Hurricane R4118 which I had seen at the Victory Show in 2015. I had taken lots of photos of it at the show and also taken some video of it in flight and taking off. I am very lucky in that we live less than a mile from where the Victory Sh
  20. This small scene was built as part of the D-Day GB. It features a Tiger 1 - Ausf.E (Late Production), Turret Number 313 of 3./s.Pz.Abt. 503 (3rd Company 503rd Heavy Tank Battalion) and a Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib, ZY-Y of 247 Squadron. The Tiger - ‘313’ - would become famous as the one which was overturnd at Manneville during the Allied heavy bombing at the start of Operation 'Goodwood' on the 18 July 1944. Three of the crew actually survived that bombing. My version is modelled before that date while the detachment was still fighting against Allied tank forces during the battles around Caen. My
  21. This is going to be my build for this STGB: When I saw the tracks that Tamiya include in the box and read some of the reviews, which suggested they are a bit too short/tight, I decided to get some of these from MiniArt: Tamiya only provide some mesh for the engine grills so I also decided to get some from Eduard: Really looking forward to getting started on this next weekend. Kind regards, Stix
  22. ZY-Y - 247 Sqn. France, June 1944 This was part of my project for the D-Day GB. The kit is by Hasegawa but re-boxed by Italeri with new decals. There are some fit issues with the kit in a couple of places but other than those it was a fun build. As can be seen from the photos I decided, as it was going to be part of a small diorama, that I would have the prop motorised. The motor I used was from Airfix. I also used the PE set for this kit from Eduard. Kit: 1/48 Italeri/Hasegawa Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib Paints: Humbrol, Revell, Citadel and Railmatch Acrylics all applied by brush
  23. Time to declare my build for this first armour STGB. It has been a bit of a struggle to decide what to build and I've been torn between several different scales and manufacturers before going back to my original choice. I've re-decided on Eduard's reboxing of Tasca's M4A1 (Tasca kit number 35010). I've recently completed another 1/35 build which I thoroughly enjoyed so thought I'd stick in the same scale. So this is the kit box: ..........you can also see I've recently picked up the Haynes Owners Workshop Manual for £6 Good timing from the Works! I'm going to build
  24. "Report back........not bring it back!!" M4A1 vignette This was my project for the M3/M4 Sherman, Single Type Group Build down in the Group Build Section. On 9th June 1944 M4A1 Sherman Tank 'Goldie' was part of the 66th Armoured Regiment that landed at Normandy. During the landing it was fitted with wading gear but this was removed shortly after it arrived. A week after arriving the 66th was part of the 2nd Armoured Regiment and took part in the 'Battle of Bloody Gulch' which took place near Carentan. The German forces in the battle were made up from the 17th SS Panzergre
  25. Tiger 1 - Turret Number 313 of 3./s.Pz.Abt. 503 (3rd Company 503rd Heavy Tank Battalion) This Tiger 1 was part of my project for the Tiger 1 STGB and the D-Day GB. The kit is the Skybow 1/48 kit which was a pleasure to make. I added Hauler etched grills and Skybow individual link tracks. This is the Tiger 1 that would become famous as the one which was overturned at Manneville during the Allied heavy bombing at the start of Operation 'Goodwood' on the 18 July 1944. Three of the crew actually survived that bombing. My version is modelled before that date while the detachment was still
